The new museum, completely renovated in 2019, offers visitors a chance to explore Bronze Age daily life, thanks to reconstructions and the original remains of a pile-dwelling village (2200-1350 BC).
Brighter and more open than ever, the new Lake Ledro Pile-dwelling Museum now has twice the space thanks to a major investment by the independent Province of Trento.
In 2011 the pile-dwelling village, together with 110 other sites of the Alpine arch, have been listed as an UNESCO World Heritage.
